  • submit to reddit

As we work through the debates this month, it’s unlikely that voters will learn many new factoids about where the candidates stand on the primary campaign issues. Obama and Romney’s positions were laid out by the time the conventions rolled around.

But The Guardian has a chart that provides some additional information for the savvy voter, outlining where the candidates agree and differ on less conventional issues. Drawing from the candidates’ own books and journalistic profiles of the two, the chart reveals how Obama and Romney feel about healthy eating, television programs, wooing the ladies and more.

To read more about the Romney family Olympics and the reasons neither candidate drinks coffee, head over to The Guardian.
